Well I bought two of my kids a betta each. I have enough basic knowledge of fish care to run a 10 to 15 gallon tank as I have in the past but Betta's are new to me.
They have a nice big bowel at least a gallon I think more though. They do have plenty of room especially from what they were in. They have natural rock gravel stuff not the fine little stuff about nickle size and they each have two plants (fake) to hide around. They already seem happier than they were. There is no lid for it though and I am thinking of making a screen top for it just to make sure no big bugs fly in or they jump out.
oh yea i bought some stuff that goes in the water to help condition it because of the tap water.
Here is what I need info on if you don't mind.
How often do I need to do the water change?
How is the best way to change the water? like leave the fish drain most water add more or remove fish change water when temp settles return fish ect....? details here would be best. I want to make sure that they are clean and taken care of but I am not buying the filter stuff.
What is the tempture that is best for these fish? I have those sticky temp things on the bowel.
I think that is it. here is something fun..... they love to follow my finger. oh yea we feed them once a day just a couple of flakes.
Thank you for your time on this. I thought I could do this but then I saw the water issues and then the tempture thing. They don't tell you much at the pet store.
